The Child Development curriculum prepares students to provide developmentally appropriate care to young children. Students learn to be sensitive to and respectful of the needs of children and their families. The discipline also prepares students for the early childhood work environment. Professionalism, ethics, and appropriate teaching and guidance methods are taught as well as practiced through 300 hours of practicum experience.

As a supplement to the supportive skills learned from courses completed in the Child Development certificate program, the Associate in Applied Arts degree program will also stress leadership skills that are needed in a director position.  In addition to the employment opportunities offered by the certificate program, graduates of this degree program will also be qualified to apply for positions as lead teachers, center directors and are eligible to apply for a license for their own child care business.

 Child Development offers the following degree and certificates:

  • Educational Paraprofessional Certificate of Achievement 
  • Advanced Certificate
  • Associate in Applied Arts
